November 25, 2008 - ScImage and Carestream Health Inc. have expanded their agreement to include joint R&D initiatives aimed at developing a cardiology information solution that Carestream Health’s sales representatives can begin selling in international markets in mid 2009.
Since October of 2007, Carestream Health has been selling ScImage’s PicomEnterprise solution—with built-in capture and visualization tools—for integration with CARESTREAM Information Management Solutions (IMS) in the U.S. and Canada. The companies believe a feature-rich cardiology solution featuring the data management capabilities of CARESTREAM IMS combined with the benefits of PicomEnterprise may help improve patient outcomes, increase efficiency and reduce departmental costs.
The powerful Web-based PicomEnterprise enables cardiology departments, outpatient cardiology clinics and private-practice cardiologists to use a single database to manage, distribute and safeguard cardiac information gathered at various points of care. PicomEnterprise is said to decrease cost and increase productivity by providing a single point of access to echo, cath, ECG, vascular, nuclear cardiology and hemodynamic reports.
CARESTREAM IMS is a scalable platform for the management and storage of digital medical images and information offering on-site or remotely hosted storage solutions. CARESTREAM IMS can be scaled to meet the needs of small-to-large hospitals and medical practices as well as regional or national healthcare information systems — all within the same software framework.
